    Peanut Butter Red Velvet Blossom Cookies Recipe

    Peanut Butter Red Velvet Blossom Cookies Recipe

    Baking is one of my absolute favorite activities to do during the holidays. I bake tray after tray of various cookies for my family and friends. I also bake plenty of extras to donate to my local library holiday cookie sale. My husband’s personal favorite cookie is the peanut butter Kiss cookie (or peanut butter blossom). I also love cookies that feature a chocolate kiss on top. In addition to the classic peanut butter version, this year I also developed a scrumptious peanut butter red velvet blossom cookie.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup of butter
    • 1 1/3 cups of white sugar, plus extra
    • 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter

    • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
    • 1 teaspoon of red food coloring
    • 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
    • 1 cup of all purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
    • 3 tablespoon of cocoa powder

    Directions

    1. Unwrap the chocolate Kisses.
    2. Cream together the butter and white sugar.
    3. Add the peanut butter, egg, mayonnaise, vanilla, and red food coloring to the butter mixture.
    4. Combine the flours, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder in a separate bowl.
    5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
    6. Shape the cookie dough into 1-inch balls.
    7. Roll the cookie dough balls in the extra white sugar. (Use colored sugar for more festive cookies!)
    8. Place the sugared cookie dough balls on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
    9. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
    10. Remove from the oven.
    11. Immediately press a chocolate Kiss into the centers of the baked cookies.
